In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

Chicken Enclosure Alterations

 For what I am sure are good reasons, JD made some changes on the chicken enclosure plans yesterday. That reality meant that we had to load up some items to return, drag the trailer to church, feed the kids at Costco and head to Lowe's to return and re-buy. The kids always have a good attitude when they get Costco pizza and I let them spend some time with the fountains in the Lowe's lawn and garden center. Elijah helped with the early morning reloading of twenty-some cement footers.

If you aren't impressed with his strength, then you have never loaded cement footers. In all actuality, these were some China-made wimpy version of cement that we were afraid the chickens would peck to death, so they all got exchanged for the old fashioned heavier version. 

Can you tell which child was the only one not playing on the cart and his father asked for his cooperation for a picture?

The exchange went quickly with the boys loading lumber inside and the girls helping me with the chicken wire outside. Then we reloaded the trailer and headed home.


Happy Father's Day to all Dads out there!
